I'll be honest, I hate sharing old old photos (like, almost a month old). BUT, it motivates me to actually sit down and at least do a quick edit of them, which makes catching up on yearly albums so much faster, so here we are. More Hawaii! Yay!
We had some fun on the fake animals at a local hotel... and of course, we had tons and tons of beaches and pools, and Riley loved the tiny playground the most...
But we did manage to sneak over to the beach a few times! These photos below were not easy to get! Not when you have a toddler that is less than thrilled with the ocean!
The next series is my fave. Thinking about ordering one of them BIG. On a canvas.
We tried every way we could think to try and get Riley to not be afraid of the ocean. She watched us go in, she put her feet in, we held her close, we told her the dolphins and seahorses and fishies lived in there (yay!), but nothing worked. She is clinging to Mark for dear life here...
And poor poor Jacky boy. The kid does not do well in warm weather. And it wasn't even THAT warm, maybe 80? He gets all hot and breaks out in a rash, and he's uncomfortable and itchy, and so I decided to try and help cool him off, to give him a taste of frozen yogurt. Well, not 10 minutes later, his face got all swollen and itchy and he was absolutely miserable. Hello allergic reaction. Luckily it was a wild one, and I was able to get him to sleep by walking him along the ocean, so it wasn't all bad.
Sigh. So after realizing the beach was probably not our friend, we spent some more time at the playground.
Always guaranteed to get some smiles from this little munchkin!
